11 Powerful Prayers for Pregnant Mothers

Expecting a child can be one of the most joyous moments in your life. These powerful prayers for pregnant mothers encourage good health, ongoing comfort, and excitement for what is to come.

Safe Delivery Prayer
Father God, you’re the one who gives life. I want to thank you for the precious gift that you have created in my womb. Lord, as I approach the final days of this journey, I ask you to grant me a safe delivery. Remove fear from my heart and fill me with your unconditional love. As the labor pains begin, send your angels to strengthen me so that I can remain strong throughout the delivery process. I thank you for giving me and my child a perfect life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Pregnancy Complication Prayer
O Holy Father, you are the God that can turn an impossible situation into a possible one. Father, I come to you today asking you for a complication-free pregnancy. Protect the baby and me. Let these nine months be free from any manner of complications that arise during pregnancy. No manner of sickness or disease will prosper in my body and affect this child. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.

Unborn Child Protection Prayer
Dear God, the enemy is against children that are being born in families that worship you. He is destroying children when they are still innocent. That is why I come to you today asking you to protect my child when it is still in the womb up to when he or she will be born and become an adult.  No weapon forged against this unborn child shall prosper, and I refute any tongue that will rise against my child as he or she grows into an adult. I cover him or her with the blood of the lamb. In Jesus’ name, I do believe and pray, Amen.

High-Risk Pregnancy Prayer
O Lord, my God, the doctors, have termed this pregnancy a high-risk pregnancy. But Father, you promised us this child. It doesn’t matter what the medical report says, what matters is what you have promised. Your word says that the fruit of my womb is blessed, and I stand firm in those words. I cancel and nullify all negative words that have been spoken over this pregnancy, in the name of Jesus. We shall not die but live to declare the glorious works of God. We are covered with the blood of Jesus, Amen.

Blessing Prayer
Heavenly Father, your word says that children are a gift from the Lord. I come to you today to thank you for giving us this beautiful gift. It is not because we are good people, but it is because you are a good father. Father, I speak a blessing over my child and I. May you surround us with favor and love as with a shield. Let every stage of pregnancy come with its share of blessing. May we be a blessing to this home, Father. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Baby’s Purpose Prayer
Lord God Almighty, we are all here for a purpose. This unborn child is coming into this world in a few months for a purpose. He or she is not an accident. Lord, establish the purposes you have for our child. Let anything that does not align with the plans you have for this child be thwarted, in Jesus’ name. Help us to teach our child the things that align with your word. Show us how to raise this child for the glory and honor of your name. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Peace during Pregnancy Prayer
Loving Father, you tell us in your word that we should not be anxious for anything. But the truth is I am full of anxiety right now. I fear for the health of the baby and me. Lord, I cannot continue to walk like this and risk this pregnancy, so today, Father, I come boldly before your throne of grace, asking you to fill me with the peace that surpasses all understanding. I surrender everything that is troubling my heart to you, and I chose to walk in the same peace Jesus has because I know that you are watching over the two of us. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

Inadequacy Prayer
O dear God, as a first-time mother-to-be, I am scared of what awaits me. I feel inadequate. My mind is full of thoughts of failure; I fear that I will not be a good mother to my child. Lord, right now, I don’t know how to balance life as a pregnant woman, wife, career woman, and friend. Teach me how to go about this. I don’t want to let others down, but I find it so hard and overwhelming. Give me divine strength that I may be able to handle things the way you want me to. Help me to take good care of this unborn child and myself. In Jesus’ name, I believe, and pray, Amen.

Wisdom as a Parent Prayer
O God, I need wisdom on how to take care of this child. My husband and I cannot do this alone. We need guidance from you because this child is a gift from you. Let your word become a lamp unto my feet as I step into this motherhood journey. Father, let my doubts and fears be washed away with your word. Bring the right people my way that will help me to know how to take care of this child and remove the people that will give me advice that doesn’t align with your word. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

Love Prayer
O Holy God, you have created this child in my womb out of pure love. Help him or her to love you too. Teach me how to love this child right so that out of that love, he or she may understand the love you have for us as your children. Give me the strength to show this unborn child unconditional love, forgive my shortcomings, and lead me in the path that I should take as a mother. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.

Thanksgiving Prayer
Heavenly Father, I want to bless and magnify your name today. We have prayed for this bundle of joy, and now he or she is here being knit together in my womb. I want to thank you for granting my husband and I the desire of our hearts. O Lord, thank you for entrusting us with such a huge responsibility. Teach us how to be good parents and help us to have a happy pregnancy season. We pray this believing in Jesus, Amen.
